We all spent unnecessary time looking at our closet to decide what to wear. Stop! When in doubt, throw away a white T-shirt! It doesn’t matter if you are wearing shorts, jeans, pencil skirts, loose skirts, or anything in between, a white t-shirt will look amazing with it! Pair a white t-shirt with dark denim jeans and a pair of white Converse for a foolproof outfit. Such a simple and classic look that you can’t go wrong with.
